A debt must be paid
"I love Corky's BBQ," was a comment on one of my blog pieces. The writer was lightning36.
When we found out that we were both going to play in Event #43 at the WSOP, he suggested a last-longer bet, and I remembered what he had written. I offered dinner at Corky's as his prize if he outlasted me. Neither of us did very well, but he went deeper than I did.
The past three days, Mr. and Ms. Lightning spent a get-away weekend in Memphis and we were able to meet at (guess where?) Corky's. And, yes, I picked up the tab -- last-longer bets must be paid, after all.
We had a great time. His bride is a lovely and charming lady. Both are personable, and we talked about whatever and wherever the chat took us. Nice! If all my debts were this much fun to pay off, I wish I had more!
